Severe Weather Information

In the event of an emergency, such as a power cut or severe weather, that prevents schools from opening in the morning or results in an early closure a range of communications channels are used to let parents know.
Pupils will be asked in the first instance to contact their Parents / Carers via mobile telephone. A text message would be sent to all Parents / Carers and a notice will be placed on the school website and Twitter account. Arrangements will be made for pupils who are unable to go home until a parent / carer is contacted.
In addition, announcements will be made on Radio Forth (Forth 1 and Forth 2) and via the Council’s corporate Twitter account and Facebook page If many schools are affected, or the situation is likely to be prolonged, then the Council’s website will also be used to disseminate information.
